This golf bag cake was made using the Wilton Golf Bag Pan. It just came out this year and I've been waiting for a good reason to use it!
Everything is edible. The "leather" trim, golf tees, pencil, club cover, zippers, and the tag were all made from fondant. To get the silver look on the zippers, I tinted the fondant grey and brushed it with pearl luster dust. The chain for the tag is silver dragees attached to the cake with small dots of frosting (so they wouldn't roll off the cake).
The golf balls were molded from white chocolate. There's a little ladybug near the golf bag. That's also made from chocolate - using a red candy writer (colored chocolate in a tube). The score card is edible wafer paper with edible ink. The grass and pom pom on the club cover are buttercream frosting piped on using a grass tip.
The grass and the golf bag were both frosted with buttercream frosting. The cake was a marble cake that I made from two different cake mixes. For some reason marble cake mix is hard to find in my area, so I made a butter cake and added devil's food chocolate marbling.
This cake was made for a coworker's son that loves to golf. The name of the golf course on the score card is a course near their home.
Here is the Golf Argyle 50th birthday cake I made for my husband's step mum this weekend. She loves golf, and supports Manchester City, so this helped decide the color scheme.
The cake itself is a 9inch cake, and there are 4 layers of a lemon sponge sandwiched with lemon butter cream and lemon curd. I then coated the cake in the remaining butter cream and left in freezer to set before adding the green icing. I colored the icing myself using color pastes and ready roll white icing.
The 50 is cut with some number cutters from white icing, and layered onto some shield shapes which I had cut free hand. I modeled the golf clubs by hand and piped the sentiment. The golf flag is a piece of spaghetti wrapped with white icing so it held it's shape and stood up completely straight.
I used a small 1 inch square cutter for the argyle pattern around the sides and piped white royal icing circles at every joint. The bunker is made with demerara sugar, the grass is green butter cream piped with a 233 nozzle.
I made this golf course cake for a dear friend & co-worked. The golf ball is made from the "sports ball" pan and covered with butter cream icing; the indentations were made with a wooden dowel rod. The sand bunkers are made with "raw sugar." There are a couple golf tees and golf balls (located in the sand bunker), which are made from fondant icing. Everything else is covered in butter cream icing with the exception of a couple silk flowers and trees.
Everyone loved the cake and Patrick (my dear friend) was surprised, he had a great birthday and enjoyed sharing his cake with all.
This Golf Course Birthday Cake was for my father's retirement from the ministry and included many of his favourite things, Church, Golf and Fishing. The cake is made up of about 50 cupcakes, the trees are sugar cones covered in royal icing, the fisherman, boat, golf bag, etc were hand sculpted from fondant and the little church is made from Graham crackers covered in fondant.
This was a blast to make and the reaction from family and friends was great too!
